As a practicing licensed psychotherapist in NY state, I already understand the value in being educated about the laws and rules in the state where you chose to work. This course taught by this instructor was valuable in helping me achieve my hope to practice in the sunshine state of Florida. Thank you Dr. Catherine Waltz.
